blog post day 6

Well it is a rainy day here so the best place to be is in my craft room (that is right ladies I have my own craft room, and I love it.) About a couple of months ago we rearranged the kids rooms and I have Abby's old room as my craft room. So since it was raining here I finished off a little project that I started yesterday. I am a blog follower of a wonderful lady, her blog is called my froggy stuff, she mainly does Barbie size minis, but you can shrink them and turn them into wonderful dollhouse size. Her latest tutorial was to make a flat screen t.v, DVD player with DVD and remote. So I got busy.
Here is Olivia watching the new DVD on the flat screen tv.

After finishing the TV, and since it was still raining I pulled out my sack of printies to see what I had. Well I remembered I had printed of a bunch of pet ones for the pet shop I want to make, so I thought "why not" so I got to work on some of them.

October 5, national dollhouse month day 5

Today I got to work on a bunch if minis in between my real life stuff that I had to do. I got more of the flowers done for the swap that I am working on. On of the swaps I am currently working on is a clock swap. I made this cute mantle or shelf clock, since I figured most would do a wall clock. I painted a wooden block and added a printie for the clock face, over top of the printie I added a silver jump ring and I added beads for decoration on top of the clock as well as beads for the feet of the clock. The brown one is for the swap and the pink and purple ones are for Ethan's house.

October 4, day 4

Today I decided I wanted to make some Tiger Lilies to go in toe the plastic vases I decorated with polka dot nail polish. The lids are from Avon lip stick samples. my Avon lady was so nice and ordered me a few packages of them. the sample packages are only available if you sell products for the company.  These 10 vases are for a swap that I am involved with . It is part of the yearly swap and I have the month of November. These flowers have fall colours and as most of you know I love making paper flowers, they are becoming one of my favourite minis to make.

national dollhouse month day 3

Yesterday I received a download from Ethan's sylvanian families or Callico critters as they call them in north America. It was patterns to make Halloween costumes for the little critters. So as a surprise to Ethan I printed off the pattern sheet which makes 4 costumes, a witch, a wizard, a pumpkin and a Joker or Jester. The patterns were very simple, use need scraps of felt and a little bit of hand sewing and some embellishments and that is all. So last night while I was watching T.V. I whipped up these cute little costumes and dressed up his little critters in them.

They turned out really cute.

Day 2

Well it is day 2 I have been working more on the toy shop, shelves are in on the second floor, I have begun putting toys on the shelves, need to make some more toys to finish filling the shelves, I also need to print off the car mats and train mats to go in the bin. I also have a pattern for a super cute scooter I want to try to make. A friend of mine her husband designed it for me, so we will see how that goes. Here are the pictures of the shelves on the second floor.

National dollhouse month post 1

Okay I'm in, some of my blog friends have come up with an idea to make a new blog post every day for the month of October to commemorate National Dollhouse Month. By participating it also forces me to work on some of my mini projects while blogging. So here we go today is the first blog post of October. Today I worked on the little cross stitch carpet for my willow house. the grey and black are done. I also pulled out the toy shop and started making shelves for the second floor. I also finished the main part of the cash register done, my next job is to figure out how to make a debit card machine part for the cash register. I am thinking clay.

So this is what I have so far for today.
